the print server doesn't need to have any real power. Depending on what you're looking for, you can just buy a device called a print server (a relatively small box), which you'd typically see listed next to routers and switches in shops, and connect that to the network.
It would be cheaper to do that than buy a PC for the job.

How much data do you need backed up?
You can get hard drives in terabytes now, so if that's enough storage space, you could just get a couple and put them in a RAID 1 (which mirrors the drives so that each one has a copy of the same data, in case one fails)

how much workload do the other servers need to handle?
